I started a phone conversation with John Alexander by asking if any AR platform only, matches had been held in the past or if he had seen many members competing with them, the answer was no and I can't think of any. Which leads me to this idea and some thoughts. First, what is the most popular rifle platform today, the AR of course. As many members already know, we are a aging organization. In order to continue and become a bigger & stronger CBA, then we need to overcome the stagnant membership level. Younger shooters are drawn to ARs for several reasons, but the main two are cost & coolness. As some of you are aware of from some of my other posts & the CBA blog, we are moving toward becoming more of a presence in social media, ie. Facebook, Google+, YouTube and Twitter. As we do, offering matches that cater more to their interests, we are likely to garner them as new members.
So my proposal is to offer AR-15 platform only postal matches. I am willing to help manage this match and am looking for input as to what to offer. Initial thoughts are to allow all calibers, but break them up into maybe two sub-categories for scoring. Feed me some ideas and I will put it together.
But make sure to vote on the poll I will set up in the General Poll Category, comments are not enough, we need actual votes to make it a reality.
